Runkeeper Android App Review


rating-star rating-star rating-star rating-star rating-star

If you’re trying to up your fitness, it’s important to be able to track your progress, to check whether your times and stamina are actually improving or not. Runkeeper is one of the best free apps available for handling this task. You can set up your own coaching parameters, say for running a 10K, and the app will then use GPS to monitor your route and speed and will call out prompts at distance or time intervals to give you an idea of how far you’ve travelled and what pace you’re currently achieving.

You can use it across a range of activities including, cycling, mountain biking and snowboarding, as well as running, and at the end of each session your stats are automatically uploaded to the Runkeeper website so you can view them online.


Runkeeper’s excellent tracking and coaching abilities, combined with its impressive companion website, make it a must have for sports junkies.
